PANORAMA EPHEMERA (2004, 89:35 min., color and black and white) is a collage of sequences drawn from a wide variety of ephemeral (industrial, advertising, educational and amateur) films, touring the conflicted landscapes of twentieth-century America. The films' often-skewed visions construct an American history filled with horror and hope, unreeling in familiar and unexpected ways. PANORAMA EPHEMERA focuses on familiar and mythical activities and images in America (1626-1978). Many creatures...

Another meme thought to have originated on the internets is revealed to have much older roots, thanks to the recent discovery of this trailer for the 1936 Republic Pictures feature "Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Robots."

A collection of pleasantly disturbing short clips, taken exclusively from the freely downloadable movies at www.archive.org, set to a nerve-wracking original score. Carefully chosen, these clips convey, through conceptual progression, a whimsical, filthy dread. An inspiring trip through the flaky detritus hob-knobbing with the dust mites in the Prelinger Archives. This movie is available as a DVD-compliant MPEG2, a VCD-compliant MPEG1, and whatever other formats you see listed to your left. ( 5 reviews ) Topics: Clipfilms, Prelinger Archival Footage

A syncopated juxtaposition of some of the odder footage found in the Prelinger Archives. No kiddin', this one will give you a for-real headache.

Sit down with a spare afternoon, a case of MILWAUKEE'S BEST ICE, a couple hundred archived CDs of Prelinger films, and this happens. You'll probably enjoy this more if you're stoned out of your mind. The movie's evocatively arranged imagery may induce low birth-weight in susceptible individuals. The MPEG1 file is VCD-ready and will look okay on your TV or computer monitor. The other formats are inferior exercises in video compression. Download them only if you must. ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Clipfilms, Prelinger Archival Footage

Nudity alert. A collection of girly clips, set to a nicely bombastic piece of music. This movie is made entirely from the vintage burlesque shorts available here at the PRELINGER ARCHIVES. Every shot involves nudity or near-nudity. Do not download this movie if you are a repressed, blue-nosed freak. The files I uploaded are the VCD-ready MPEG1 and the Quicktime .mov. The MPEG1 has the best picture and sound. The Quicktime is smaller, with swooshy audio-compression artifacts and barely...

(Part 1 of 4) This is a historical retrospective of a history of American sexuality and culture as told through the lens of the Prelinger Film archive collection. Narrated by George Putnam (Perversion for Profit), it spins through many Prelinger film clips interwoven through their topical connections. It presents a wonderful example of a history of media manipulation and social engineering. The film winds through the narrative only for the viewer to not know if George Putnam is truly for or...

Every afficianado of ephemeral public-domain films is familiar with the gratuitous and ubiquitous "purple vomit sequences" that inexplicably appeared in a great number of these films over a twenty-year period. As yet, not one producer, crewmember, or actor who was involved in any of these films has volunteered a reason for these bizarre segments, most of which have been excised from prints currently in distribution.
